CEN Workshop on methodology to improve the recyclability rate of Critical Raw Materials from cars

This CWA is related to two aspects: the identification of Critical Raw Materials (CRMs) embedded in car electronics and the information sharing among all the actors involved (for several reasons and with different roles) in automotive supply chains. This CWA defines a method to support all the automotive actors in identifying the presence of CRMs in car electronics and disassembling/separating/recycling these components in a proper way. The final aim is improving the recyclability rate of CRMs from cars, create a market for secondary CRMs and reuse CRMs in new high-value applications (possibly within the automotive sector).
